Maintenance and security
All sites have gates that are locked with a padlock. Tenants are issued with a key.
Regular site inspections are carried out at each allotment site to ensure plots are being cultivated properly. A maximum of two letters will be sent to plot holders in the event of non cultivation.
If the issue is not resolved, the tenancy will be terminated.
Most sites have got a Site Secretary and you can find out what their role is in the Roles of the Site Secretary (.pdf 25Kb)
The Council's Grounds Maintenance contractors are responsible for maintaining the main paths/hedges at all allotment sites.
Hastings St Leonards Allotments Federation
The Federation was formed by a number of Allotment Site Secretaries in August 1998 to act as a lobbying force for all allotment gardeners in the Borough.
This group is independent of the Council and meets to discuss improvements, the future of allotments and allotment policy.
